Theater Marabu GbR (founded in 1993) is a professional independent theatre with its own performance venue in the “Brotfabrik” cultural centre in Bonn. One or two productions for young theatregoers are produced with guest performers each year. The artistic focus is on stories that take a light-hearted approach to life’s existential questions, and that stand up for the needs of young people and for tolerant coexistence. Forms of narrative and presentation are sought that invite the audience to complement their theatre experience with their individual world of experience - as active partners and co-actors.

marabu projekte e.V., a not-for profit association, was set up in 2003. The association’s objective is to carry out aesthetic, artistic and cultural education projects for children, young people and adults.

One of these projects is the Junges Ensemble Marabu J.E.M., a project to stage a theatre production with young people. Each year, a production linking theatre education and artistic skills is prepared which remains on the programme throughout the year. These productions have been invited to attend the “Youth Theatre Meeting” and the German federal “Theatre Youth Clubs” meeting.
